Somatic Exercise

Somatic therapies are a type of therapy that focuses on the mind-body connection. They use a variety of techniques, including somatic exercises, to help people improve their physical and mental health.

Somatic exercises are specific movements that are designed to release physical tension and improve overall well-being. They can be done either individually or in a group setting. Some common somatic exercises include:

  • Gentle stretching: This can help to improve flexibility and range of motion, and can also help to release tension in the muscles.
  • Deep breathing: This can help to slow down the heart rate and breathing, and can also help to promote relaxation.
  • Progressive muscle relaxation: This involves tensing and relaxing different muscle groups in the body. This can help to release tension and promote relaxation.
  • Mindfulness meditation: This involves focusing your attention on the present moment without judgment. This can help to improve awareness of your body and your thoughts and feelings.

Somatic exercises can be a helpful tool for people who are dealing with a variety of issues, including:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Pain
  • Trauma
  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
